My Approach to Helping
Sofia believes therapy is a wholehearted commitment to growth and healing, opening the door to self-compassion and emotional fortitude. By embracing vulnerability and imperfection, processing feelings, and exploring their shadow selves, Sofia’s clients tap into their innate intuition and higher selves. In addition to supporting clients’ unique goals, Sofia strives to foster each individual's sense of unconditional self-love and authenticity.
Sofia utilizes an empowering integrative approach and assesses client needs holistically by considering stressors, thought patterns and interpersonal conflicts in combination with past trauma and development. Sofia encourages clients to engage in self-exploration, nurture their inner child, practice mindfulness, and improve mind-body connection alongside her use of evidence-based interventions.
Sofia’s specialization includes treating clients with traumaPTSD, anxiety, and difficulty with emotion regulation. Additionally, she works with clients struggling with depression, grief, divorce and family conflict, substance use, mood and personality disorders, attachment disorders, life transitions, and gender identity.
